Marouane Fellaini has not exactly had the easiest of times at Manchester United, with his credentials questioned on a regular basis since arriving at Old Trafford in 2013.
The Belgian has been consistently linked with a move away from the Red Devils, but he is currently in his fifth season with the 20-time English champions.
There was talk of a move to Galatasaray in this summer’s transfer window, but such suggestions were rejected by Man United boss Jose Mourinho, who is clearly a big fan of the versatile midfielder.
Fellaini was given the final 15 minutes of Sunday’s Premier League clash with West Ham United, and he was on the field for two of his team’s four goals at Old Trafford.
There are still some that believe that Fellaini does not have the credentials needed to represent Man United, but there is no question that he has turned his career around under Mourinho over the last 12 months.
Suddenly Fellaini appears popular with the Man United supporters, and he can now post away on social media knowing that the response will be largely positive.

He puts his heart into the games, despite all the hate he receives and not many players do that nowadays.
